Light Gauge Steel Building Technology
In this building type structural members are manufactured by cold forming the galvanized steel. Structural elements that are manufactured under control and supervision by modern machines are brought to the construction site and assembled. For this reason human errors are minimized in light-gauge steel buildings. Additionally, as on site manufacturing is reduced to minimum, errors and damages commonly seen at the construction site are dealt with. Even because of only these characteristics light-gauge steel building systems are far better than conventional reinforced concrete buildings.
Also plastic deformation behaviors of these buildings are more efficient than reinforced concrete buildings; therefore no sudden collapses occur in an earthquake which enables the building to remain standing safely after the earthquake.
Construction phases of steel buildings resemble the phases of conventional reinforced concrete buildings. The building is designed, architectural and static projects are prepared. Then the steel frame construction starts. The production takes place in the factory flawlessly. Floor, wall, roof, etc components of the building are manufactured as galvanized steel profiles in appropriate sizes. These profiles are sent to the construction site without loss, either as profiles or as panelized parts, considering the distance of the construction site and the transportation conditions. Profiles are assembled by expert assembling teams at the construction site in line with the architectural plan. Only special studs are used during the assembly, no welding is done. When the assembly is done, the frame is filled with insulation materials (fiberglass, rock wool, etc.). Walls are covered with OSB (Oriented Standard Board) or similar materials.
Taking the speed of construction and credit facility potential into consideration, Light-gauge Steel Building System is very advantageous in terms of costs. The primary factor increasing the costs in a construction project is the time. Reinforced concrete buildings take longer time to be completed. As light-gauge steel buildings can be completed in a very short period of time and errors caused by craftsmanship are minimized, they are more cost efficient in terms of money and time.
The construction speed of a building may vary depending on the size, shape, whether it has a basement floor or not, location, and that regions climate and topography. These parameters, without doubt, are also valid for low-rise reinforced concrete buildings.
However, when Light-gauge Steel Buildings System is compared to reinforced concrete system, it is obvious that steel building system is built quicker and even without causing any environment and noise pollution as they come out of the factory faultlessly.
Advantages of LGSF Building Technology:
► It doesnot pose any lightning risks!
Unlike other load bearing systems, steel construction isnot dangerous in terms of lightning. Because protection system goes into the land decreasing the risks of explosion, small sized fires and injuries.
► It is durable against time!
Galvanized construction steel is used in steel construction. Galvanized steel doesnot corrode.
► It is earthquake resistant!
The most important precaution against earthquake is to reduce the load of the building. Steel buildings are 5 times lighter than reinforced concrete buildings. Steel absorbs most of the earthquake energy and saves you and your belongings. Japanese earthquake experts announced that the most earthquake resistant system around the world is Ottoman wood frame system.
► It is environmentally friendly!
Steel is a durable and reusable material. Materials gathered from the disassembly of steel buildings are recycled. A buildings skeleton made of light-gauge steel can be recycled from 7-8 old cars.
► It is quick!
Building up process is very quick and independent from weather conditions in steel construction, as concrete is not needed except for the foundation and subbasement. This allows a decrease in the need for capital and in the construction costs. Assembling of a 200 m2 house can be completed in only 7 days.
► It is economic!
Prefabricated load bearing elements provide high quality for reasonable prices and shorten the construction period to a great extend.
► It is easy to modify!
Adaptation to our rapidly changing life styles can be more easily and economically provided in steel buildings. Partition walls can be removed or their places can be changed to meet your changing needs even years after the construction. Modifications can be done on the non-load bearing walls only with the approval of engineers. It is not possible to add new floors to a completed and delivered building.
The technology used for construction is a commonly used international light-gauge steel system that has been approved of by formal authorities in the States, Canada and European Countries.
► Steel Building System is safer than reinforced concrete!
As steel construction building system is lighter than other systems, it is exposed to less earthquake force. Steel building elements arenot brittle like reinforced concrete, but act in a ductile manner; they absorb the earthquake force without collapsing. In steel buildings it is very unlikely for floors to collapse one on the top of the other and cause any casualties.
► Steel buildings live long!
Coatings that are used have a guarantee period given by the manufacturing company. Design calculations of steel buildings are done projecting a 50-year economic life, like all other buildings.
► Steel Building System can be used in different types of projects!
Various architectural designs can easily be put into practice. If you like you are welcome to pick one of the projects archive or ask for a new architectural project according to your needs. We can also implement an architectural project that you will bring.
► Do I need to buy the house as key-turn or is it possible to buy only the steel frame?
Loom Crafts gives all the options to there clients. You can buy your house as a steel frame, advanced rough construction or key turn.
► Do I need to get the foundation done by myself?
No. If you like you can get the foundation and subbasement done yourself or Loom Crafts can complete the foundation project and construction for you.
► What is the cost of a house constructed by Loom Crafts?
The prices depend on the coating materials to be selected by the customer. You can buy the same house as a very luxurious house or as a modest house. Your house will definitely be more cost efficient than a reinforced concrete house of the same quality. Just for an idea, our costing starts from Rs. 1800.00 and goes up to Rs. 2500.00 per Sq Ft inclusive of everything except Movable Furniture.
► How many floors can Loom Crafts Buildings have?
It is possible to erect till 4 floors depending on the architectural suitability. The most reasonable and economic solutions are found in 2 or 3 storey houses.
► Can Loom Crafts Steel System only be used for dwellings?
No. It can also be used for low-rise commercial buildings and small sized industrial buildings. Additionally, Loom Crafts Steel System can also be used for internal or external partition walls, serial production roof trusses, floor joist production, serial production cabins for bathrooms, toilets, etc.
► Can you construct buildings all over India?
As long as they comply with the relevant construction procedures we can build houses all over the country.
► How big is the size of the house?
It depends on you. Loom Crafts Steel technology can be used for different sizes from a 20 m2 garden house to a 600 m2 villa.
► How long does it take to construct a house?
It can be delivered in 45-60 days followed by another 30-45 days of finishing work at site.
► How will be the thermal insulation at very hot and cold temperatures?
Thermal insulation characteristics of your Loom Crafts Steel House are calculated according to the location and the most suitable insulation materials are used. Therefore it provides the comfort of a warm atmosphere in winter ad cool in the summer. It also helps save from heating and cooling costs to a great extend.
